through hands-on engagement in our 626-acre outdoor classroom that includes our livestock barns, fruit and vegetable plots, pastures, year-round greenhouses, forests, educational gardens, and rocky shoreline. Programs change with the season and what’s happening on the farm.
Hop aboard our hay wagon as we enjoy fall on the farm. Students will visit our pumpkin patch and explore the life cycle of plants including seed structure, germination, and pollination. Students will also pick out their very own pumpkin to bring home ($2 extra per student). This field trip is offered in October only.
Due to the nature of Wolfe’s Neck Center being a working farm, tours are limited to 30 participants, which includes all students, chaperones and parents.
Our field trips take place rain or shine! There is indoor space in the unheated barns for activities, but please make sure students come dressed for the weather.
Students, teachers, and chaperones should all wear clothes to be outside, whatever the season. Field trips rarely go inside any buildings but our unheated barns. It’s also a good idea to wear boots or sneakers you wouldn’t mind getting mud, or a bit of manure on (It is a farm, after all!).
You are more than welcome to eat your lunch here on the farm. We cannot guarantee a covered space, but we have lots of picnic tables and benches around the property. We do ask for groups to pack out all their trash. Fridge space is unfortunately not available.
